Starting PhotoPaint From Draw
Hello All,
when i run this lil snippet, I get presented with an error. It still works though. Anyone know whats going wrong????

Dim myappid As String, returnvalue
mayappid = Shell("C:\Program Files\Corel\Corel Graphics 12\Programs\CorelPP.exe", 1)
AppActivate myappid
End Sub

The application and the error pop up at the same time.
Any clues are welcomed.
Thanx, Andy

Error Message
The error message I got was "variable not defined". That is because you have myappid spelled as mayappid. Fixed that and it works fine.

Also you may want to look here:

This example shows how you can test to see if the application is already running. Might help.

Shelby, thankyou. The link you provided gave me some valuable insight. However, Yes I did make an error in my spelling. Strangely did not affect anything. The AppActivate command seems to be the trouble. It still Gave me an error after I checked spelling. Anyway.... I looked further and found that negating the .....AppActivate myappid..... altogether, seemed to work.
Anyway, Thankyou. again
